By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Per the network's notification:

Critically acclaimed Thursday night comedy "Welcome to Sweden" has been renewed for a 10-episode second season. No premiere date has been determined.

The series was created by Greg Poehler, with events based on his real life.

Cast: Greg Poehler, Josephine Bornebusch, Lena Olin, Claes Mansson, Christopher Wagelin, Per Svensson

Executive producers: Greg Poehler, Amy Poehler, Pontus Edgren, Carrie Stein, Frederik Arefalk, Felix Herngren

Producers: Entertainment One Television, TV4, FLX and Syskon

Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times said, " 'Welcome to Sweden' is the best thing to happen to broadcast-network comedy since 'Modern Family.'"

"Welcome to Sweden" has averaged a 0.8 rating, 3 share in adults 18-49 and 2.9 million viewers overall in "live plus same day" averages thus far from Nielsen Media Research.

The July 10 premiere of "Welcome to Sweden" averaged a 0.9/3 in 18-49 and 3.5 million viewers overall, making it the second-highest rated summer comedy debut among seven on the Big 4 networks in the last five years (since ABC's "The Goode Family" in 2009), behind only NBC's "Undateable" over that span) in 18-49 and total viewers.

"Welcome to Sweden" is generating an upscale audience, indexing at 105 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes ("most current," with 100 representing an average concentration of those homes).
